279 The chapter on the sixth sense was included, because the book is designed for
280 the purpose of presenting a complete philosophy by which individuals may
281 unerringly guide themselves in attaining whatever they ask of life. The starting
282 point of all achievement is DESIRE. The finishing point is that brand of
283 KNOWLEDGE which leads to understanding-understanding of self,
284 understanding of others, understanding of the laws of Nature, recognition and
285 understanding of HAPPINESS.
286 This sort of understanding comes in its fullness only through familiarity with,
287 and use of the principle of the sixth sense, hence that principle had to be
288 included as a part of this philosophy, for the benefit of those who demand more
289 than money.
290 Having read the chapter, you must have observed that while reading it, you were
291 lifted to a high level of mental stimulation. Splendid! Come back to this again a
292 month from now, read it once more, and observe that your mind will soar to a
293 still higher level of stimulation. Repeat this experience from time to time, giving
294 no concern as to how much or how little you learn at the time, and eventually
295 you will find yourself in possession of a power that will enable you to throw off
296 discouragement, master fear, overcome procrastination, and draw freely upon
297 your imagination. Then you will have felt the touch of that unknown
298 "something" which has been the moving spirit of every truly great thinker leader,
299 artist, musician, writer, statesman. Then you will be in position to transmute your
300 DESIRES into their physical or financial counterpart as easily as you may lie
301 down and quit at the first sign of opposition.
302 Previous chapters have described how to develop FAITH, through Auto-
303 suggestion, Desire and the Subconscious. The next chapter presents detailed
304 instructions for the mastery of FEAR.
305 Here will be found a full description of the six fears which are the cause of all
306 discouragement, timidity, procrastination, indifference, indecision, and the lack
307 of ambition, self-reliance, initiative, self-control, and enthusiasm.
